Objectives of the Program:

The Endocrine Surgery Fellowship at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine and NYU Langone Health seeks to educate the next generation of leaders in endocrine surgery.  We will provide fellows with the training and mentorship to not only become clinically outstanding endocrine surgeons, but also to develop their skills in research, leadership, and teaching, in preparation for their future careers.

Highlights of the Fellowship:

The NYU Endocrine Surgery Fellowship offers a rich and unique clinical experience in the surgical management of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and endocrine pancreas.  Clinical training at NYU provides exposure to both a high volume of straightforward and complex endocrine surgical cases (nearly 900 operations annually), as well as an unparalleled breadth and diversity of patients and disease presentations through rotations within the tertiary- and quaternary-care NYU Langone Health system in Manhattan, Long Island, and Brooklyn, as well as at Bellevue, the nation’s oldest public hospital and the “crown jewel” of New York City’s public hospital system.  Fellows will gain extensive experience in a wide range of techniques and tools, including endocrine neck ultrasound, fine-needle aspiration biopsy, laryngeal ultrasound and laryngoscopy, transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy, thyroid radiofrequency ablation, and minimally invasive adrenalectomy.  They will also develop a broad education in relevant multidisciplinary topics with our partners in medical endocrinology, nuclear medicine, pathology, otolaryngology, and HPB/surgical oncology.  Fellows are expected to complete a minimum of 200 operative cases, although they will likely complete 230 or greater.

Fellows will participate in and lead several educational and multidisciplinary experiences, including the management of endocrine-related tumor boards, journal clubs, and teaching sessions for residents and medical students.  They will also participate in mentored research projects with our faculty across a wide breadth of clinical and translational research and will be able to leverage the expertise and research resources of the Division of Endocrine Surgery as well as the Department of Surgery’s new Center for Surgical and Transplant Applied Research.
